Linwood Park Apartments, a new development at 315 Linwood Street in East New York, has just launched an affordable housing lottery. The 10-story complex is located in the rezoned Atlantic Avenue corridor and is made up entirely of affordable units, available to those earning 40, 50, and 60 percent of the area median income. 69 apartments are available in the lottery, ranging from $856/month studios to $1,504/month three-bedrooms. Eight of those units have been set aside for those who qualify for Section 8, meaning eligible residents will pay 30 percent of their income for rent.
The 105,000 square-foot building contains 100 apartments and approximately 3,700 square feet of community spaces. 30 units have been allocated for formerly homeless families. Residential amenities include an on-site superintendent, a community room with kitchenette, computer lab, children’s library, fitness room, laundry room, and landscaped outdoor space. Designed with energy efficiency in mind, the building features a photovoltaic solar installation and energy-efficient appliances.
It’s located off the J, Z, A, and C trains and also close to the Q24 and Q56 buses. A playground right across the street offers basketball and handball courts.
Applicants who live in New York City will receive a general preference for apartments. A percentage of units is being set aside for applicants with disabilities (mobility, 5 percent; vision/hearing 2 percent). Current residents of Brooklyn Community Board 5 will receive a preference for 50 percent of units; municipal employees will receive preference for five percent of units.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until February 11, 2020. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
